Nelly – An Evening with Nell Gwynne, Graham Hopkins
Venue: Knight & Garter
Nell Gwynne is the classic rags-to-riches story of a woman born into poverty who ended up being the most famous woman of her day. An orange seller at the theatre, she became its leading comedy actress and then mistress to King Charles II. And she was funny. Samuel Pepys called her “pretty witty Nell”. It’s said the whole world knows Nell Gwynne. Our folk musical comedy tries to show you why.
